Fish fest


Complete with Yiddish rap, the first-ever “Gefiltefest”—a Jewish cultural extravaganza organized by College students Miriam Gedwiser and Beth Malinowski—took place Sunday evening in Ida Noyes’s packed third-floor theater, decorated for the occasion with white and blue streamers. After a buffet dinner including, but not limited to, gefilte fish, the attendees took in a variety show featuring a monologue, skits, and a guitar performance. The evening concluded with an energetic set by the University of Chicago Klezmer Band, playing traditional Eastern European tunes with a number of instruments: bass, percussion, guitar, saxophone, clarinet, piano, cello, and violin.
